Down Beat (5/92, p.44) - 3 Stars - Good - "...the more filled-out 1938 reworkings of "East St. Louis Toodle-O" and "Black And Tan Fantasy" are tours-de-force for trumpeter Cootie Williams. "Come Sunday" by Mahalia Jackson is sublime. And it's good to have the title piece back again..."

REMINISCING IN TEMPO is probably one of the finer single-disc compilations of Ellington's work. A companion collection to a PBS biography of the composer, the track list spans from the Okeh recordings in the late '20s (beginning with the unbelievably infectious "The Mooche") to the stirring 1959 "Come Sunday" with Mahalia Jackson on vocals, and a treatment of his classic "Black Beauty" from 1960. Duke's early, blues-based dancehall work seems somewhat underrepresented, though the tracks included are impeccable, from "Rockin' In Rhythm," to "Merry-Go-Round."
The mid-'30s to mid-'40s find the artist's compositional ambition and genius transforming the structure and feeling of his pieces, veering towards symphonic complexity without sacrificing accessibility, as evidenced in the title track and the cuts from "The New Black and Tan Fantasy." Beloved Ellington classics like "Mood Indigo," "Take The 'A' Train" and "Sophisticated Lady" are sprinkled liberally throughout. Other than the more comprehensive box sets, it may be hard to find a more historically representative, or more thoroughly enjoyable sampler of the work of this 20th-century genius.
